I had started this table runner at the quilt retreat last week-end but now I've finished the top and need to quilt it. This ended up being 60" long but it's a gift for my sister-in-law and she has a formal dining room so this will be fine on her table. She loves blue so there is a lot of blue.
This is the third result of this runner and the first one is still on my design wall, then instead of the blue between the blocks I cut 2.5x2.5 and sewed those together from the fabrics but after all of that work I did this.
I was able to purchase the blue fabric at the retreat on the clearance table for $3.00 yard!! It's nice fabric. The pin wheels are from moda fabric.
Working on drawing on fabric with permanent markers. I haven't sprayed alcohol on the first photo.
This one I've sprayed with alcohol. Would anyone like a tutorial on how to do this?
A Christmas pin cushion that needs to be sewed shut.
This is Makla Dubrawsky fabric from Moda and I found this yard this morning. I did some Internet shopping yesterday and had purchased the jelly roll for this and 2 yards of this fabric. Then I found that I already had a yard!! LOL Does anyone else do that? She designs my favorite fabric and when you see these colors in person they are amazing!! My colors!! The big quilt that I finished a couple of posts back is the first line she did for Moda. My friend Suzy did a quilt last week-end with the first line of fabric. Nice to have a friend who has the same taste in fabric as you!!
